With stage direction by Ruth Carver and music direction by Mathieu DíOrdine, the live 10-piece chamber orchestra will enchant your heart with memorable and dazzling music, and talented local professional opera singers will beguile your eyes with their impressive ability to take you to a land where good intentions are misconstrued as evil plots and happily ever after depends on completing many trials to gain enlightenment.

Lasting approximately an hour with a question and answer period after the show, The Magic Flute is the perfect introductory opera for children who love stories, singing, and acting. Sung in the original German, the dialogue will be in English and the main characters Papagena and Monostatos will narrate the story while inviting lots of audience participation. There is even a chance to dress as a dragon! The performance is probably most appropriate for children ages 3 and older.
